Potty player Jordan Spieth doing a portable potty at the PGA Championship
ROCHESTER, NY — Jordan Spieth appears to have gone from golf’s absolute golden boy to a potty-mouth, and the golf gods agreed at Saturday’s PGA Championship.
The all-American, three-time major champion and former radio darling of “Dang It!” and “Gosh!” Lately, every time he missed, he’s been caught saying a few different words.
On the 18th hole at last month’s Masters, Spieth made a powerful run at leader Jon Rahm and pulled his drive left into the trees on the final hole. I walked alongside him as he marched towards his ball and witnessed quite an intense exchange between Spieth and the aforementioned golf gods:
“Give me a shot, give me a damn shot! Give me a swing, give me a damn swing!”
The most exciting golfer repeated this mantra almost all the way to his golf ball, which he found lying on a branch and buried in the trees. This was not caught on camera.
This week at Oak Hill. After spotting the cut at five-over-par, Spieth was on the court early on a rainy Saturday morning in Rochester, NY
His first drive of the day somehow found its way into the on-course toilet, his ball surrounded by portable potties while the golf gods unleashed a few laughs. After conceding a drop, he hit a shot towards the first green which hit a tree and fell straight down. “Holy shit, Jordan,” he yelled.
After bogeying this hole off the porta-potties and making his second birdie, Spieth came up short on a faulty tee shot and left the hole on the third par 3 hole. As the ball was airborne and headed for a bunker on the green, Spieth was picked up by another microphone on the course and said, “Damn! Hit a good, damn iron shot!”
Hell, some people never learn.
